Hey guys, is there any gear that will cover the business section (939 area) as well as the ham repeater split at 927mhz as well as ham simplex use on 927mhz?

I would prefer a Jedi since we use MTX9000s at work and I have a tone of personal Jedi stuff. Is there anyway to tell what Jedis will do it without getting too involved?

No, you have to try it and see. Some will do it as they come, and some will do it after making some adjustment with Labware. Some, apparently, are immune even to that. My approach was to keep buying radios until I found a couple that worked. They turned out to be MTS2000s, but others have had trouble with those too. None of my MTX9000s will do it, but again, others have found differently.

Ge. MPA with hamflash FPP and vco hardware mods works also but the hamflash requires an old dos PC and the hardware mods are not easy to find these days since a pack rat ate the original files a couple of years ago.
